CARLO ANCELOTTI has joined legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to have the most Champions League wins as a manager.
The Italian, 63, has won Europe's top club competition four times – which is a record in itself.
But after Champions League holders Real Madrid beat Celtic 5-1 at the Bernabeu, Ancelotti reached another impressive milestone.
He has equalled legendary United boss Ferguson, who has won the Champions League twice, to hold the most victories as a manager in the competition with 102.
The win over Celtic pushed Ancelotti meant the Italian has reached the milestone in five fewer matches than Sir Alex.
Ferguson's last Champions League win came on November 7, 2012, 3-1 at Braga.
